I’ve always believed that fireplaces are the main focal point of the home when it comes to the holidays — I mean that’s where Santa arrives with his sack full of presents, right?! This year, I wanted to create a unique setting around the fireplace, so I opted to save the traditional red stockings for next year. If you follow along on my Instagram, you know that I love simplicity, which carried over to my holiday decor. Our new home has a variety of citrus trees in the backyard (kumquat, grapefruit and lemon trees) so I wanted to incorporate these elements into my design.
I love all of the fresh wreaths and garland that World Market has to offer. I used their Magnolia wreath and garlands on our Thanksgiving Front Door — so I went back to World Market to find a wreath that ties in to this look. I fell in love with the simplicity + fullness of their live olive and eucalyptus garland. I prefer live garlands for the holidays because they’re so versatile. You can put in on your fireplace mantel, use it to create a wreath, or place it on your table as the runner! I also pick some of the greenery off the garland to garnish the Turkey, or even to add some holiday cheer to my gift wrapping! In addition, citrus elements are a wonderful way to add a pop of color and bring your decorations to life when you’re hosting a party.
I’m so glad that I invested in several of their glass lanterns, because I use them for almost every season (including filling them with pumpkins for Halloween). For Thanksgiving, I filled them with a mix of the kumquats, lemons and snippets of eucalyptus leaves. It’s always wise to invest in essentials that you can use every season!
Lastly, I wrote ‘Let it Snow’ on a fun chalkboard that’s framed in a gray stain wood. It added just the right touch of winter to this look. If you want to add more texture — try planting some greenery in copper accents, such as this copper bucket!
I’d love to see how you style your fireplace mantel with your World Market goodies! Take a picture and tag @LavinLabel, and make sure to use the hashtag #WorldMarket.
